The Locked Back - Francine St George

Physiotherapy Coaching Academy Australia

A dynamic approach for the treatment of both an acute and chronic locked back: How to get your patient moving from Day 1! Treating a locked back can be very challenging. We now understand the pathomechanics of why this occurs. It is imperative that the patient overcomes their fear and learns how to move functionally and freely from Day 1. Research has demonstrated that a passive approach to treatment does not achieve this. This course will provide you with the essential clinical skills to use a dynamic approach to treatment to assess and treat a locked back. All topics and techniques covered are based on the current research on muscle inhibition and the neuroscience of pain. You will also be introduced to how to integrate neurofitness and cognitive skills and drills into all your programs. These are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, and fun to do. Topics covered: • The pathomechanics of a locked lumbar segment and MRI findings • Techniques to downtrain overactive muscles and activate the deep stabilisers. • RTUS assessment for TA & PF. • Neural testing to identify if the instability is local or has a distal driver. • The 5 essential neural techniques and exercises to enable your client to learn how to unlock their back themselves. • How to alter your exercise programming for hypermobile and hypomobile clients. • Recruitment of stability muscles, adding endurance and functional strengthening progressions. At the completion of this Course you will be confident and know how to refine both your assessment and treatment of any presentation of back pain.
